After his mother dies, Adam comes across some letters exchanged years ago between his Polish mother and his father, a Kurd living in Iraq. For Adam, this is an opportunity to learn more about the father he has never met. The juxtaposition of animated drawings and archival material takes us forty years back into the past and enables us not only to feel the emotions linking the lovers living in different parts of the world, but also to uncover an extraordinary family secret.
